Passion Pit – extra live date at Koko added

Good news for all new Passion Pit fans: the high-jinks electro-rockers have added an extra date at Koko in October.  That’s on Wednesday 28 October; the existing date, on Tuesday 27, has long sold out.

Koko’s an excellent arbiter for the success of Michael Angelakos and co.  Late last year they played the Mornington Crescent venue as second support (behind Esser) for Black Kids.  They were little-known then, playing the first few songs to a crowd of tens rather than hundred.  But the quality was evident, as the floor was completely filled with impressed eavesdroppers half-an-hour later.  The four musicians might look a bit geeky and gangly, but whoa, do they know how to make a tune!

Fast forward a year – with debut EP Chunk of Change followed by full-lengther Manners, and a rollicking, BBC-broadcast Glastonbury set seen by oodles of armchair viewers hurriedly scrambling for a Post-It pad – and Passion Pit are now headline material at Koko.  It’s richly deserved.

Live dates:
Tues 27 Oct – Koko (sold out)
Wed 28 Oct – Koko (typically flowery and self-fond preview by a Koko writer, and tickets available, here)
